E-Waste Recycling

The University of Michigan and Ann Arbor Public Schools co-sponsored a community-wide e-waste recycling event from 2008-2016. Due to changes with the recycling partner, we are not having future e-waste recycling events. Other options for the responsible recycling of electronics can be found below.eWaste Event

For tips on recycling your e-Waste at other times, see the EPA website.

The summary from the U-M/AAPS events can be found here

Protect the Environment

  • Electronic waste, or e-Waste, is the fastest growing waste stream in the country.
  • e-Waste often contains hazardous materials, which can adversely affect the environment.

Conserve Natural Resources

  • Consumer electronics contain materials that require the mining of raw materials. They are highly recyclable.
  • Electronics recycling technology separates commodity streams of metals, plastics and glass, and processes these materials for reuse in new products.
